We present the case of a 46-year-old male with an initial BMI of 44.7, who underwent a laparoscopic single anastomosis duodenal-ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy (SADI-S). Postoperatively he developed an anastomotic leak at the duodeno-ileal (DI) anastomosis that would not resolve despite reoperation and bowel rest. A conversion to a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) was performed 14 days after the index case. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Comparison of Laparoscopic to Robotic Bariatric Surgery in Community Hospital Program
Objectives: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic roux-en-y gastric bypass and revisional bariatric surgery are the most popular bariatric surgical procedures performed today for treatment of morbid obesity, accounting for 90.7% of all bariatric surgeries in 2016. Many bariatric patients pose unique issues for the surgeon due to body habitus. Robotic surgery is gaining popularity among bariatric surgeons as a way to perform many of these surgeries. The enhanced visualization and ergonomic dexterity may offer these surgeons advantages in the morbidly obese. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

It is known to improve hypertension, hypercholestrolemia, Type II diabetes (T2D), and few report improvement in Type I Diabetes (T1D). This is interesting as the pathophysiology of development and treatement of T1D is different than T2D, with the former being an autoimmune disease and latter being a disease of obesity. Here we present case of a 38 year old patient with T1D who is needing minimal amount of insulin 3 months post RYGB. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

“Two birds, one stone”: ITP managed at the time of bariatric surgery
Background: There is a growing prevalence of obesity, with a subsequent increase in bariatric surgeries. As a result, the patient population undergoing surgery has become widely varied with multiple additional medical and surgical problems. Some of those additional problems, on occasions, require surgical management. This can sometimes become tricky and pose a challenge in the decision to proceed safely with an elective bariatric procedure. One such consideration is ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura), which, if refractory to medical management requires surgical treatment. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Impact of weight loss on the body composition of patients 1 year after gastric bypas
Background: Obesity is a multifactorial disease and involves genetic, psychosocial and nutritional aspects characterized by chronic inflammatory state. Bariatric surgery is a resource used in cases of failure in the clinical treatment for obesity and promotes an efficient reduction in weight. Gastric bypass is the most practiced technique in Brazil, accounting for 75% of the surgeries performed, due to its safety and efficacy, providing a weight loss around 70% to 80% of the initial weight and control of the main associated comorbidities.
